Vinyl Wraps For Ford F150
To possess a Ford is a dream and why would it not be, when Ford has time and again proven to be the best in all aspects. The same goes for the sturdy Ford F150, one of the most popular versions of a pickup truck, currently in its 14th generation. It not only mesmerizes with its aesthetics but the horsepower and the capabilities of towing and loading keep it in high demand.
If you have invested in such an amazing vehicle, you would surely want to maintain its charm. That is where vinyl wraps come in with their multiple benefits. Let’s discuss why vinyl wrapping is the most viable option for the Ford F150.
Why Should You Wrap Your Ford F150?
There is no denying the fact that vinyl wraps have been gaining traction among car enthusiasts primarily because of their aesthetic appeal and the fact that they can transform the outlook of any vehicle making it eye-catching and beautiful. But this is not their only benefit. There are many reasons why you should wrap your Ford F150.
1. Vinyl Protects The Original Body
It is highly imperative to protect the original paintwork of your vehicle. Vinyl wrapping your Ford F150 does that for you. It will save its original body from minor chips, dings and road debris. It forms a protective second skin around your Ford that bears the brunt of all these detriments while driving.
Vinyl will also protect your Ford F150 against harsh environmental elements, the most damaging being the UV rays of the sun. Constant exposure to these can fade the original paint over a period of time. A vinyl film acts as a protective shield against them and other weather conditions.
It will also protect your Ford against tree sap, bird droppings and damage from other small animals consequently maintaining the resale value of your truck. Whenever you remove the wrap, you will get the impeccable original look underneath.
2. A Cost-Effective Option
If you have owned the Ford F150 for quite some time and want to refurbish it with a new color, repainting will cost you a lot. It is also very time consuming and will give a permanent change to your Ford that will deteriorate its resale value. Vinyl wrap is the best option to renovate your vehicle with a new color without burning a hole in your pocket. It does not take a lot of time to wrap your pickup and you will get the best value for money.
3. Easy To Clean
Due to the unconventional traveling of the Ford F150, frequent cleaning is required and every trip to the car wash will eventually start feeling like a huge burden that you cannot ignore. But if your pickup is wrapped in vinyl, you can easily clean it at home with a mild detergent and microfiber cloth. You do not have to wax your Ford as well since a vinyl film is glossy by nature and simply washing it is enough.
4. Hassle Free Replacement
Ford F150 is a sturdy vehicle. It has to bear many harsh elements, especially while off-roading, hence the chances of the wrap getting scratched are higher. When you feel the need for changing your vinyl film, you can easily replace it with a new one. It will not leave residue behind and you can completely transform your pickup with an exquisite new look in no time.
5. A Wide Variety Of Vinyl To Choose From
When you own a Ford, you want it to stand out, be the gem on the road.

Other Options In Vinyl Wrapping Your Ford F150

Partial Wrapping Your Ford
This involves wrapping certain parts of your vehicle to give it a transformed look such as the hood, roof, doors, upper half of the body or wing mirrors. You can wrap any one of these or in combination. Carbon Fiber and matte black vinyl are the most commonly used films. Apply carbon fiber on the hood of your Ford F150. Since it is black in color, it will complement the original paintwork of your vehicle and will not be costly too.
Some people just want to add vinyl decals to their Ford F150 to make it an extension of their personality. These include flames, geometric designs, a screaming beast, stripes, abstract lines and so on. Decal kits are available but if you want something customized for your Ford, you can get it too. They are easy to apply and are durable, resisting peeling scratching and UV damage. Most people get them installed on the back fender or sides of their Ford but you can also apply them on the hood.
Camo Vinyl Wraps
For a tough ride like Ford F150, Camo wraps are ideal. They perfectly depict the gung-ho spirit of the vehicle and are great for both full and partial wrap. They are not only available in the conventional colors of green and brown, but other shades have been introduced to them as well so you can choose the one that you like. They are captivating and stylish and will make your Ford a star on the road.
